These are rights you simply don't have (at least not in the
american sense of "Free Speech") in Ireland, or indeed most of Europe.
That said - most HSPs will allow you to publish what you want within
their T&C, and unless they get complaints, will do absolutely nothing to
prevent you saying what you like.
At the end of the day though - you still have to comply with the laws of
the land, regardless of your opinion on them.
Censorship - that's possible, but unlikely unless you really go too far
Filtering - again, not something HSPs tend to like doing (too much like
Surveillance - by whom ? Surely if it's published anyone can read it ?
Limitation - plenty of those, depending on your provider
